Yup, I agree.

That kid is as much a cyclist as his wee mate tearing about on a quad bike is a motorist, though.

Meanwhile, the Mail want riders off the roads, and off the pavement. Perhaps we should balance on the kerb?

Umm...
If he's on the road on a bike then surely he's a cyclist?

Yet another Daily Mail attempt to nudge their readers in the 'right' direction with a "but who's fault was it" question.


Cyclist tumbles to the ground in an excruciatingly painful crash after colliding with a car at a busy junction – so who is at fault?

They aren't having it this time:

Got to say its the cars fault on this one, and i'm not keen on cyclist.

car drivers fault

Notice the pattern, though:

'No winners here': BBC presenter Jeremy Vine takes aim at ANOTHER driver while out cycling as he films a car trying to squeeze past a woman on her bike but had she gone through two red lights first?
Who's in the right? Enraged cyclist accuses driver of cutting him up - but the motorist claims he should have signalled before pulling out to go round parked cars

The pattern continues today:


Undertaking cyclist captures the moment a bus squeezes him out of a bike lane into the kerb... but is the driver REALLY to blame?

At what point are cyclists going to use some common sense? The poor bus driver has a massive vehicle to get around tiny streets and these fools are on 2 wheels. Get over yourself and give the bus driver a break.

Funny the way self-righteous cyclists expect every other road user to respect their cycle lanes, when most cyclists have no respect whatsoever for rules that apply to them.

Almost 10 comments read before "road tax and insurance". Are the Mailites learning?

Female motorcyclist wearing a high visibility vest is nearly sent flying as a motorist suddenly pulls out of a junction 'without looking' - but some commentators say that SHE is at fault
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... g-air.html

After being posted online, the video has attracted a number of comments - most of which blame the driver. However, a post suggested that she could have been at fault.

Vast majority of people obviously point out that the driver is at fault apart from 1 or 2 people who tried to blame the cyclist. So let's make them the central point of the headline and article.

Note: The cyclist was at fault and fortunately he walked away relatively uninjured.


I was just taken aback by the sneering and gleeful tone of the headline in a nation newspaper:

Hilarious.

Last week four lads on a training run out the North coast were hit by a car , one dead two seriously hurt. This in broad daylight on the open road. Funny that didn't make the Mail.
